Things To Consider

Hiking while vaping is different from doing it at home. In essence, you will be facing the outdoors and the elements, and your vape must be ready for whatever they throw at you.

The Ideal Hiking Vape Device

First things first, the best devices to bring are box mods that use sub-ohm tanks. They are the perfect vape devices for hiking because they are built to withstand punishment. It’s better if your devices can suffer falls or extreme weather and are made from tougher material, at least in comparison to plastic. That’s why we recommend browsing through our selection of box mods.

While disposables might be the most convenient to buy, they’re probably not the best fit for outdoor activities, especially ones where there could be camping involved and convenience stores are far away. 

On top of that:

Disposables are more prone to breaking if they fall, if dust enters the drip tips, or if they run out of battery. Finally, RDAs and drippers are also not a great idea since you will have to stop and refill them every now and then. 

That said:

Box mods with heavy-duty tanks that carry plenty of juice are the way to go. 

Storing Your Vape Device

After you choose your device, the next order of business is making sure it’s protected from the weather and potential falls. This is a risk that’s easily reduced by keeping your product in the right place. If you are hiking in the cold, carry it in an inside pocket close to your body so your natural body heat can keep it warm but remember to turn it off and keep the tank half empty so it does not leak. If you are hiking on a sunny day, try to keep it in an outside pocket (preferably in your backpack), and don’t forget to turn it off and to keep the tank half empty. 

If the weather is nice and it’s not extremely cold or hot, buy a vape lanyard so you can carry it around your neck or tie it around your belt. This will free up your hands which will help you climb, hold a walking stick, or catch yourself from slipping on the trail. 

Bring Extra Supplies

Finally, out in the wild there are no plug sockets or vape shops, so you have to bring plenty of extra vape juice and batteries. You can buy vape juice and nicotine salts at a discount for your next outing right here on the eJuiceDB website. If you don’t want extra batteries, consider bringing a power bank so you can charge your batteries without taking them out of your vape. These are the top three things you should consider when hiking and vaping. 

Vaping Etiquette While on the Trail

Finally, we want to say a word about vaping etiquette while hiking. First off, resist the temptation of vaping in a crowded place. Believe it or not, no matter how good your banana custard vape juice smells, many people hate the aroma and equate vapor to cigarette smoke. So it’s best to be respectful and only take hits when alone on the trail. 

Another thing to resist is littering. You’ll probably have an empty vape juice bottle, or if you brought a disposable, a whole vape that no longer works. Resist the urge to throw it away in nature and wait until you find a trash bin. 


Keep in mind all these things and you should have an incredible day of hiking and vaping next time you hit the trails.
